July 1, 2004 "The Dive" by Derek Jeter
The Seattle game especially as it shows you the difference that 14 years makes. In that game you had 57,000 people chanting expletives at Ken Griffey Jr in unison and the Mariners had to be pulled off the field after Mattingly homered as there was a near riot. Last week, you could not get half the Stadium to coordinate on "Who's Your Daddy".
But I digress. All of the games are classics in one way or another and are sure to make any Yankee fan's day. The presentation is nice in a metal box instead of cheap cardboard that you normally find.
Four stars because two of the games are available in other sets and the games are not widescreen.
